If you want to be the life of the party, host it.

#1. Lessons from a top-tier party host.
My friend Nick Gray has the first chapter of his new book up: The 2-Hour Cocktail Party. I’ve been to two of his parties and I can confirm he has the format dialed down. I had a great time, met some people, and still talk to some of them. Definitely recommend this, especially for anyone who is a networker.
Instead of going to random bars or meet-ups to try to create new connections, I decided to go a different route. Instead of going to other people’s parties, I decided to bring the party to me.

#2. Subscribing to human curators.
We all need help finding signals in the noise. I’m increasingly frustrated with algorithmic curation because all the algorithms seem optimized for immediate signal, i.e. did I click on something? I wish they were instead optimized for did my life get better? But that signal isn’t available for days or sometimes even years. 
That’s why I’ve come to be a believer in human curators. I want someone smart to pick out the most important signal and give me some context for understanding it. This newsletter is that — I have a worldview and use it to frame the information I send you.
That’s all a long lead to this interesting Twitter thread that starts to list out some of the good human curators out there

#3. (Maybe) don’t have knee surgery.
I’m not in any way clear on how to give guidance here. But I see over and over again credible sources talking about alternatives to knee surgery.
In some cases, physical therapy is leading to better outcomes than arthroscopic surgery. Here’s one recent summary of the literature.
What I’d like you to take away from this is that if you end up with a knee injury in the future, take some time to research alternatives to surgery.
